Over her career, Ms. Ross has identified, evaluated, and documented thousands of historic-age resources (50 years of age or older), including a large number of properties that were erected during the post-World War II Era. Specifically, Ms. Ross has documented post-World War II Era property types which range from expansive military and civilian industrial production facilities to commercial and residential properties.
